    Wow.I didn't think the pacing would live up to the animations put out by the park... but it absolutely flies through that layout. That first twisting hill and following hill look like some wild ejector. Can't wait for this ride to open.

    Are you weary of Lech Coaster pics from SkyScraperCity? Because I'm not:

    Some pretty good close-up shots too! I am surprised to discover there's going to be some amazing interaction with the water ride below. Great picture spot then ;)

    I've heard Zamperla's coasters are still pretty bad. And of course, there's all the Asian knock-offs, though they might have improved in recent years as well.

    In a pinch, they could found their own company specializing in terrible coasters, to keep the tradition alive.

    Now that the track is complete, Legendia has moved on finishing the (promising) theming. The upside-down headchopper station fly-by should be fab!

    I can't get excited over this because of those god damned vests :( They will kill any kind of enjoyment on this.

    The curve of the roof for that sort-of-corkscrew makes me happy.

    What coasters have you ridden with these vests? Did you ride them before they had those vests installed if they are older creds?

    The only ones I've ridden with the vests are Python (Efteling) and Sidewinder (Hershey), I didn't ride either with the old OTSRs. I've obviously ridden plenty of other clones with those OTSRs though, and a few are very close to my bottom 5 coasters, Big Loop (Heide) and Flashback (SFNE) come to mind. Both Python and Sidewinder were significantly better than the others.

    So while it's disappointing that it's not just a Mack style lapbar, at least it's not the old OTSRs.

    Yeah. Vekoma's vests are nowhere near as bad as B&M's. Nowhere near.

    I've done Python and Speed of Sound. I'm not actually sure if I prefer them over the old OTSRs. The old ones are crap for sure, but those vests are the most restrictive restraints I can think of. It's so extremely tight and literally kills any chance of getting any airtime. I know the two aforementioned coasters don't really have any airtime, but the vests are SO tight that it's impossible to move into any direction, so the chance of airtime is quite slim. Honestly, the best Vekoma OTSRs I can think of are the ones on the Boomerang at PowerPark. Those were quite fine.

    It's a shame because the layout on this coaster looks excellent, but I just can't get excited about it whatsoever. If only Vekoma could make other restraints as well as their glorious SFC ones.

    Lofty, I found the ones on The Swarm much less tight than the Vekoma ones I've done.

    X-Flight, Valravn, Banshee, Gatekeeper and Thunderbird all have some of the worst vests I've ever come across - miles worse than the Vekoma ones I've done.
